leaders from the fields of marketing, advertising and trade industry. As we

it a big challenge to attract new foreign investments. At the same time this
will be an opportunity to also find new ways forward within our own
resources: our companies, our brands, our people. For this reason we will

national brand that we have been searching for years, and is all around us -
the people of Serbia”.
